Ukulele Jam Info Page

Welcome

Hi there! Great to have you here.

I’m in the process of setting up a regular schedule of both in person (Portland OR) and online (Zoom) jams for Fall 2022. This is a transitional time, so I appreciate your patience! Keep your eye on your email for the latest scheduling info and/or double check information below regarding upcoming jams.

At both jams, we play songs out of a common songbook. You can download (and print, if you like) the latest version below. I’ll also have a good handful of printed songbooks at in person jams. Often, though, I’ll include a song chart for a special / themed song for a particular jam. These are archived below, as well.

Both jams are free and open to all. If you’re able to offer a donation, teaching music is my livelihood, so I am very grateful! Here are some ways you can donate:

  • Via credit card or Paypal on my website: donate to the Zoom jam here and to the in person jam here
  • Venmo me @averyhillstudio
  • Send me a check, made out to “Avery Hill”, at: Avery Hill, PO Box 40073, Portland OR 97240.

THANK YOU!

For those who print out the songbook, here are the songs that have been added / changed significantly:

I also recommend having the current Table of Contents on hand so you know which songs are up for choosing (songs from previous jam books do get “timed out” or “retired” from time to time):
